Before saying anything, I honestly mean no disrespect or offense to anyone. I've been known to offend unintentionally attempting to make points. That said.
Wow, another stupid ass decision by Marvel so they can appeal to more crowds that never gave a sh*t before, because apparently all the original fans that made the company rich and famous aren't good enough. No offense to girls, but why the hell is Marvel turning all the characters I love and grew up with into girls? Are they trying to tell us something? This is just getting pathetic. I'm sorry girls, but are you not cool or capable enough to be your own new character and not piggy back on already successful characters so that people will accept you? You're just not interesting enough to be your own character or something? Apparently Marvel thinks you aren't. I'm not even a girl, and that makes me mad for them. I'd be just as mad if Jean Grey all the sudden got turned into a dude, or was replaced by one. Leave the damn characters alone. Is billions of dollars not enough money, or enough support from fans to realize you have a lot of them, so you feel you have to undo/edit what you've done to appeal to a new crowd that's more deserving or something because they're not fans? That doesn't even make sense. I'm sorry, but if Wolverine tearing people apart mercilessly doesn't appeal to little kids or sensitive guys and girls, who the f*ck cares? Go read Reading Rainbow. They're not the ones that grew up with the characters and stories and made them famous to begin with. I read that Marvel and DC are altering things about their content to appeal more to gay people and woman, and that they are fighting over which company will win those crowds over the most. Why the f*ck is that even a discussion? If you're gay or a woman, cool. Good for you. Don't you find it offensive that a company thinks they have to make something just like you so that you'll be able to enjoy it, basically saying you have nothing unique about you and that you are just like the rest of your kind, and are defined solely based off your gender or sexual preference? I hope you die Marvel. Thanks for making us wait over 10 years for MvC3 too, and then adding a roster of shit, and changing the game to play nothing close to it's predecessor, at least positively. They're all about their fans though. Totally.
Last thing, promise. Does anyone else here find it pathetic that they changed the Ancient One in Doctor Strange to be a woman actress, even though the character is an old asian (I think) man? They stated the reason being that they felt the character should represent a guy and a girl (meaning transgender) and that actress looks like both and can play both, so she was perfect supposedly. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember the Ancient One being a transgender. So one day he's gonna tell himself he's a guy, wake up the next day wanting to wear a dress or pee sitting down so he's going to conveniently identify himself as a woman to fit his needs? That's something Marvel felt needed to be an apparent feature of the Ancient One? Wow Marvel, you guys got your sh*t together.
